Obama says Gulf Coast Seafood Safe to Eat
From Fox news website:

President Barack Obama sought to reassure nervous diners during his trip to the coastal town of Theodore, Alabama Monday that seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is as tasty and safe as it ever was, despite the ever expanding oil spill blanketing the area.

I had some of that seafood for lunch, and it was delicious, Obama said, We want to make sure that the food industry down here, as much as possible, is getting the protection and certification that they need to continue their businesses.

The president said that multiple agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association are stepping up their efforts to keep the food supply safe. State and federal agencies will be monitoring fish caught near restricted areas to ensure that they are safe to consume.

That increased scrutiny wasnt enough for at least one Gulf Coast seafood lover. Steve Platts, a resident of Gulfport, Mississippi who used to eat seafood daily, now insists he will no longer eat fish from local waters. He thinks that between the oil and the dispersant chemicals used to clear the slick, the health risk is too high. I dont want to fish or eat the fish anymore, Platts lamented, I dont trust anything coming out of the Gulf.

Yeah, I saw him say that on the news and I couldn't believe how incredibly irresponsible it is to claim that while BP is polluting the water with Dispersants.

Does human safety mean so little? Don't answer that..it was rhetorical.

I won't be feeding any of it to MY children, no matter what O says.

Re: Obama says Gulf Coast Seafood Safe to Eat
I am wondering how Corexit will effect the worlds seafood?

I guarantee that shit's not going to just stay in the Gulf.

Some of my favorites I worry about eating, like Chesapeake blue crab, Maine lobster, North Atlantic cod, etc... are now off my menu.

Sad state of affairs.
